Honda Rallies North American Team to Support Local Communities, Address Food and Hunger Needs
June 11, 2021
Honda is enlisting the efforts of its associates, dealers and suppliers to support local communities as part of the company’s Team Honda Week of Service initiative.
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Honda is extending the annual weeklong initiative to run through August 31, 2021, and is launching a national Virtual Food Drive to restock food pantries that have been hit hard as a result of the pandemic and as a safe alternative to in-person volunteering.
Throughout the summer, 158 dealers and 94 suppliers will join Honda throughout North America in performing more than 360 service projects in their own local communities through virtual and in-person activities.
Team Honda Week of Service is an annual event that began in 2016 to encourage community service projects and highlight the important work of local community organizations throughout North America. The event coincides with the founding of American Honda Motor Co., Inc., the first Honda company established in America, on June 11, 1959.
